Ravon Audio. Not heard of it? There’s a good reason for that, it’s a pretty new brand, and its opening product is the i332 iPod dock. And when I say iPod dock, I’m also saying it’s an iPhone dock – the i332 is emblazoned with both the ‘Made for iPod’ and ‘Works with iPhone”. Oh, and when I say iPod or iPhone dock – don’t think it’s all about Apple’s portable AV gear, with the i332’s 3.5 mm jack you can use other portable AV devices.

The i332 has a piano black case, and inside are a 2.5 inch full range driver, 1 inch tweeter, plus a 4 inch subwoofer. The unit’s S Video out allows you to connect to a TV and play the video on the iPod/portable AV player, and see that video play on the big screen.

The bonus of the i332 having the Apple docking connection for iPod and iPhone means that the unit will also charge them while they’re connected.
